Stenciling with PowderPuff Chalk Inks

Good morning from Ohio! Alicia with you today illustrating how to use Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Inks with a stencil. Stencils have always been an important tool in crafting but with new and fresh designs coming out regularly they have regained popularity.  
When I picked up this great stencil, my mind was racing with possibilities! The image would not fit on an A2 card so I created my own card base of various sizes.

To create this image:
  • First tape down your stencil with some washi tape. Block out  your state of choice using the washi tape as well.
  • Ink your stencil with your color choice, mine was Blue Jeans PowderPuff Chalking Ink
  • Reverse your taped out state. Uncover and washi tape around be sure you have enough coverage for inking your state without transferring unwanted color on the other states.
  • Ink your choice state with color of choice, mine was Red Hot PowderPuff Chalking Ink
  • Remove stencil

Ohio is not my home state. This meant I had to make a Georgia map as well.  I also made a Texas version for a friend in Texas. I added some ribbon and red bling/stickers to the image to give it a pop!
